If you love Happy Hour as much as I do, you know that it’s always five O’clock somewhere. In this case, that place is Kenosha! After a tough day of work, you deserve to unwind and have some fun. Luckily the Kenosha area has so many fantastic bars and restaurants to enjoy and even save a buck or two with great happy hour deals. We saved you the leg work of tracking down so many varying times and offers so read on if you want to learn about dozens of deals and oodles of offers on drinks, dining, and delight in Kenosha!
The phrase “happy hour” can be found as far back as the works of William Shakespeare, but the classic idea of Happy Hour is thought to date back to the first part of the 20th Century. During Prohibition, alcohol could not be served at most restaurants, so people would often meet at speakeasys before dinner to imbibe earlier in the evening. This kicked off a trend which continues to this very day even now that subterfuge isn’t required for a cocktail.
Some of the bars, pubs, and eateries that offer more traditional happy hours include:
-Boat House Pub & Eatery: Monday-Friday 3 to 6pm
